Framingham State University is proud to present the 2014-15 Arts & Ideas Program - a year-long series of engaging speakers, performances, exhibitions and films. Most events are free and open to the public.

Designed to stimulate the kind of thought-provoking conversations that represent co-curricular learning at its best, this year's program explores two complimentary themes: "A Republic of Learners" "...And Justice for All."

The latter theme echoes the final phrase of a pledge we repeat because it bears repeating. If, as Dr. King warned in 1963 "injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere," it falls to us as an academic community to consistently interrogate what we mean by "justice" brochureimage.jpg- in settings as diverse as an American courtroom or the the Arctic icecap - and perhaps more poignantly, who we mean by "all." Understanding the history of injustice - in the justification of a "heathen school" or an internment camp, strengthens our ability to analyze current forms of injustice embedded in our institutions: in our schools, in our approach to white collar crime or human rights. Ultimately, the goal is to image what an inclusive justice might look like: "justice for all."
